He was killed on 25 May 1944. In a letter to his family his OC writes
"His death was due to his own devotion to duty. On the Morning of the 25th of May after we had penetrated and captured the Adolf Hitler Line your son proceeded to search the battlefield for fallen comrades. In attempting to rescue one, a German 'S' mine exploded. His death was instantaneous."
